Garver is accepting applications for a Graphic Designer - Marketing (Kansas City, MO; Tulsa, OK; Georgetown, TX)

Job Description:

Do you have a competitive side and are looking to work in a creative and detail-oriented environment? Garver’s in-house Marketing Team is expanding and looking for a Graphic Designer to gain hands-on marketing, and graphic design experience. This role will support our transportation project pursuits by visually translating ideas and text into appealing design solutions. Success in this role can lead to further independent responsibilities. This position will be located in our Kansas City, Missouri, Tulsa, Oklahoma or Georgetown, Texas office.

The ideal candidate will have a strong sense of teamwork, the ability to work independently on assignments, handle multiple projects at one time while remaining flexible, and working within tight deadlines.

Responsibilities in this role will vary greatly, giving you the chance to be creative in delivering messages and imagery in tasks such as:

  • Offering creative ideas, process improvements, and technological solutions to expand our team’s abilities
  • Creating graphics for print collateral such as proposals, reports, and brochures

What is unique about this position
